Abstract [en]

The present work represents both: a design proposal and a proposal for design.Today we are exposed to more and louder noise than ever before in all areas of human life, which alters the environment, our health and the quality of social interaction to the worse. Therefore, this project takes its departure point in the concept of Stille (German for stillness and silence) in order to oppose this culture of noise.

Our surroundings influence our actions and vice versa we alter these surroundings with our actions. However, since constructed within every detail, they do not allow a transient feedback to take place naturally. A possible otherness is hardly attainable in an overly planned reality.This thesis seeks to transcend the boundaries where descriptive language ceases to function and introduces materiality and interactive devices to evoke other avenues of reflection where the boundaries of actor, context and artefact converge.

The proposal at hand embodies the fundamental principles of Stille in order to exploit aspects of parametric design and contingency. It imagines and materialises alternative ways of a potentially open process in which our physical environment could continuously constitute itself. Both hidden and apparent aspects of reality are unraveled and transformed into artifacts. The work depicts the transient complexity of reality and the contingent influence of everyone on our surroundings.

How is our behaviour altered by the materialisation of ideas? How receptive is the current design practice to a constantly changing reality?
